Comments: FA: Christian Burrell & Brian Gonzales. At least we did it together thinking we were “first”. We didn’t spot any evidence of a previous passage. We were headed down after climbing on the north face, spotted the line and thought, “why not...?”

Comments: Pat Ament took me here and this was the first climb we jumped on. I was just a kid looking to impress a famous old hand, but got my butt handed to me. Amazing what a little technique can do.

Comments: I remember leading this for the first time and felt like I had topped out something HUGE. Proud moment for me years ago. Good early lead for anyone.

Comments: Hey guys, so I am wondering about the line now with all the comments about the rating. Can we get a consensus? Also, how well do you feel it is bolted for the difficulty now? Do we need to get anything changed out? New bolts? Move bolts? replace the chains?

Comments: Hey! That was my FA. I totally forgot about it though. I started pretty far to the right in the low scoop and moved left which included a dead point to a small crimp, then up into the big holds on the slab.

Comments: Logan was on the project that Tristan bolted back when we were still developing the area. I was planning to both the rout over the roof to the left of this, but never got around to it.

Comments: Just so you know, the route actually goes up the crack to the right, then traverses around to the left under the big roof. I can see the big flake sticking out of the crack below the roof that added to the excitement. It really doesn't matter though as long as you were having fun. I've done both of those cracks and thought the one on the right way more fun, but to each their own.

Comments: One thing I learned a long time ago is that these "main" faces in the quartzite is that pretty much everything has been done over and over again. You can only put so much into a guidebook. But hey, climb whatever looks interesting to you and call it good.

Comments: This looks like the roadside cracks above Robbins Crack. They were my first climbs as a young kind. I've never seen a specific name besides either "Roadside Cracks" or "Practice Cracks".

Comments: Ha ha! I am trying to recall how in the world we got up there to drill the bolts in the first place. I think Tristan just scrambled up using tied off bushes for pro. This is probably how it happened cuse Tristan has always been fearless.

Comments: There at least used to be a nice flake for your right hand that made getting you foot high pretty easy. Very possible this flake broke off by now.

Comments: I wonder if anyone ever sent the project just left (basically under) Excessive Bail. Start to the left and work up tiny crimps angel leftwards to the crack that heads up to join EB. Tristan and I were doing it on TR (years ago) trying to get it wired before we pulled out the pads to go for it. We didn't think it was a good idea to bolt it. We ended up getting distracted by other fun projects before the real send (I know we both got it on TR at least once).
